The Bible is not a neutral book. God clearly tells us that we work for Him or we work for “prince of the power of the air” which is Satan. If our lives cannot be neutral, than our homes should also not be neutral ground. Our children are watching and we need to teach and live in Christian clarity.
Eph 2:1 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins Eph 2:2 in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—
Here is a quote by J. Hampton Keathley, III
“There can be no religious neutrality in a home because neutrality about God is itself a form of religion--an anti-God religion. If neutrality is the attitude of parents it will become the religion of their children. Most thoughtful people see the stupidity of bringing up children with an “open mind” about things like school, but fail to apply the same saneness of thought to knowing God.”
“Most thoughtful parents, by contrast, want their children to know about God and moral living. But somehow in the hustle and bustle of life, they never get a chance to take stock of where such training will come from. They think if they send them to Sunday School that will do it, but that involves only one hour out of 168 hours in a week. But there is a place that has a great deal more impact than any other in society due to the dynamics involved--if those dynamics are utilized. Where is that place? It’s the home--the place where life makes up its mind.”
